Tybee Post Theater preparing to open

TYBEE ISLAND, GA. (WJCL) Tybee Island is getting ready for a long anticipated debut.

After years and years of fundraising efforts,  the Tybee Post Theater is slated to open next month.

The theater was dormant for more than 40 years, until it reopened for one live performance in 2010.

It’s being renovated and will serve the Tybee community as a movie theater, and performing arts center.

“The light at the end of the tunnel is not the incoming train, it is the opening of theater,” said Jim Kluttz, President-Tybee Post Theater. “And we’re really excited about it, not only for us, it’s finally here, we’re excited for Tybee, we just think this is a tremendous asset for this community.”

No exact date for the official opening has been announced, but it will be sometime in September
